Shaquille O'Neal opens up about almost beating a classmate to death and Kobe Bryant's death


“Every time I went to a place, I made my name quickly,” O’Neal stated.

“I’d find out who ‘the guy’ was, study him, and I’d beat him up. Take his spot. Everybody knew who I was.

“I almost killed a kid. They showed me the jail.”

O’Neal admits he changed tact after this incident.

“I shifted everything into becoming the class clown,” he said. “Just to make people like me. It was [another] mechanism for [dealing with my insecurity]. I wasn’t a leader yet. I was a follower on the wrong path.”

O’Neal also admitted he suffered from anger management issues, often destroying his own home following a poor game.
